The time for small thinking is over. The time for trivial fights is behind us. We just need the courage to share the dreams that fill our hearts. The bravery to express the hopes that stir our souls. And the confidence to turn those hopes and dreams to action. From now on, America will be empowered by our aspirations, not burdened by our fears –- inspired by the future, not bound by the failures of the past –- and guided by our vision, not blinded by our doubts. I am asking all citizens to embrace this Renewal of the American Spirit. I am asking all members of Congress to join me in dreaming big, and bold and daring things for our country. And I am asking everyone watching tonight to seize this moment and Believe in yourselves. Believe in your future. And believe, once more, in America. Thank you, God bless you, and God Bless these United States © The post Key Highlights And Full Text Of Trump's Address To Congress appeared first on MintPress News .

Vaughn Highfield 11 min 14 sec ago Nintendo Switch Price when reviewed 179.99 To understand the Nintendo Switch you first have to understand Nintendo. It’s the culmination of over thirty years of Nintendo’s gaming hardware know-how. Ever since the Nintendo Entertainment System entered Japanese homes in 1983, the aim has been to entertain families, bring people together and show that video games can bring the world happiness. That idea has been Nintendo’s mantra in everything it’s ever produced. It’s all about creating a sense of joy and wonder; it’s about transporting you back to your youth – or if you’re still youthful – showing you that life isnt always about being serious. All those feelings have been distilled down into the Nintendo Switch. The moment you hold the it in your hands, turn it on and hear that chime for the first time – and every time – you can’t help but smile.

But there's more research that needs to be done, Murton says , as the exact dates of the sediment that have been exposed in the crater still aren't known. Murton is devising a plan at the moment to drill bore holes in the region in order to examine additional sediment in hopes of getting a better understanding of what happened in the past. Ultimately, we're trying to see if climate change during the last Ice Age [in Siberia] was characterised by a lot of variability: warming and cooling, warming and cooling as occurred in the North Atlantic region, he explains .

Howdy Bit-Techies :), I'm after some advice having gone from a small 3bed house which was just about covered by my Apple Airport to a large house 2.5x the size of my old one which is killing the airport in terms of wifi coverage and speed also would like some wifi in the garden which is a no no at the moment lol. I've done my useall googling but want to make sure what I've short listed will do the job and also up for some recomendations of experience people have had. Options 1. Google Wifi (3 pack for the extra coverage or more if needed) 2. Netgear Orbi (similar situation as above) 3. Existing airport extreme & add express stations to boost the signal. 4. Standard router plus some access points (cheapest option I guess) So which of the above will give the best results, also if this helps it'll all be tied into some home automation, nest & Hue devices will be dotted around. Cheers in advance guys :)

So what should we as progressivesAmerican progressives, Israeli progressives and progressives globally demand of our governments in bringing this future about? Let’s take a moment to talk about values. It’s often said that the US-Israel relationship is based on “shared values.” I think this is correct, but then we also have to ask: What do we mean by this? What values are we talking about? As progressives, here are the values we share: We believe in democracy. We believe in equality. We believe in pluralism. We are strongly opposed to xenophobia. We respect and we will protect the rights of minorities. These are values that are shared by progressives in this country and across the globe. These values are based upon the very simple notion that we share a common humanity. Whether we are Israelis or Palestinians or Americans, whether we are Jews, Christians, Muslims, or of another religion, we all want our children to grow up healthy, to have a good education, have decent jobs, drink clean water and breathe clean air, and to live in peace.

Saoirse Ronan - easily one of the best actresses around at the moment - stars as the Irish immigrant who moves from a small Irish town to Brooklyn in search of work. Adapted for the screen by Nick Hornby, the story flits along at a great pace but its the acting that really shines. Focusing on the life of Stephen Hawking, particularly his relationship with his first wife, The Theory of Everything is a beautiful film to watch - even if it's a little unfulfilling. Both Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones are fantastic, though, with Redmayne a deserved winner of the Best Actor Oscar. Labor Day wasn't a success in the UK but you can put that down to the very US centric title. That aside, it's another great film from Juno's Jason Reitman, who is rivalling his dad Ivan for classics. Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin are Adele and Frank, a single mum and convict who kindle an unlikely romance.

President Trump has delayed the announcement of a new version of his travel ban , after his first address to Congress was warmly received. The new travel ban was due to be signed Wednesday but some thought it would have distracted from the well-received speech, CNN reports. We want the (executive order) to have its own moment,' a White House official told CNN. The original travel ban barred citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S. It was suspended by a federal judge after a lawsuit from Washington state and Minnesota, which alleged that it amounted to religious discrimination. White House policy adviser Stephen Miller has said the new ban will address some of the very technical issues brought up by the court, but will have the same basic policy outcome. The Associated Press reported that Iraq may be dropped from the list of seven countries, Syrian refugees will no longer be barred indefinitely and the ban will no longer have an explicit exemption for religious minorities, which critics had argued was designed to prioritize Christians while excluding Muslims.

Beauty and the Beast could make major strides in representation when it hits theaters in a few weeks, with one of the first known LGBTQ characters in a Disney princess film. In an exclusive with Attitude magazine, director Bill Condon revealed that Le Fou (Josh Gad) is coming to terms with his sexuality and that the internal struggle has a payoff. LeFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston, Condon said in the interview. SEE ALSO: 'Beauty and the Beast' mashed up with 'Harry Potter' makes a bizarre love story He's confused about what he wants. It's somebody who's just realizing that he has these feelings," he added.

(REPORT) While military policy wasnt heavily focused on in President Trump’s first address to Congress, an early and quick emphasis was placed on the recently announced plan to increase military spending by 9%, in particular emphasizing that this meant the formal end of sequestration, which led to loud applause. Military sequestration was meant to cap the rate of military spending increases into the future, and initially went into effect in 2013, leading to predictions of doom from top military leaders virtually from the moment it was announced. In practice, the sequestration never really happened, with every annual military budget finding some way or another to circumvent it . Despite this, hawks regularly referred to the sequestration as though it was happening, and lamented insufficiently huge military budgets. It was in this way that the myth of sequestration remained enough of a bogeyman that Trump could get big applause for killing it once and for all, and the fact that it doesnt require him to do anything different makes it that much easier.

Syrian government forces have re-captured a strategic area from terrorists near Palmyra, getting closer to entering the Daesh-held ancient city. The army says it has retaken the Palmyra triangle, a few kilometers west of the city. A military official says the army will soon enter the city while a monitoring group expects this to happen any moment. Reports say government forces have captured Palmyra Citadel on the city’s outskirts. The army is being supported by the Russian air force and the Hezbollah resistance movement. In December Daesh took control of Palmyra, while Damascus was focused on defeating terrorists in Aleppo. The Takfiri group has razed some of the ancient monuments in the city. The recapture of Palmyra will be another major blow to the terrorist group in Iraq and Syria. Watch Live: Twitter: http://twitter.

Many designers have refused to dress the first lady. Not Dolce Gabbana. Perhaps a shame that the clothes drew little praiseMenkes at commented that, bar a few space helmets, "most of the clothes were reruns on familiar territory," – but with many new followers likely racked up, perhaps they don't care. There was a rumoured closing curtain for Donatella Versace as creative chief at the label, who took over from her brother Gianni after his tragic death in 1997. However, while her collection certainly drew on Versace trademarkschainmail dresses, body-con, dégradé sequins, thigh-high splitsDonatella was powerfully engaged in the present moment too, and emblazoned her clothes with messages of solidarity such as, "courage", "strength" and "unity", a message commended by Friedman in The New York Times . Lauren Cochrane at The Guardian was reading between the lines after the hooded tops and sporty shapes in Versace’s collection gave a nod to Ricardo Tisci (who recently departed Givenchy) – "Tisci was one of the first designers to put the hoodie on the catwalk – did Donatella’s collection herald the shape of things to come?".

Breastfeeding moms are expert multitaskers . So when one working mother needed to nurse her baby during a live TV appearance, she managed to pull it off with only the slightest hitch. On Feb. 24, writer and entrepreneur Rachel Sklar tweeted a gif from a CBC News broadcast in which she appeared as a guest commentator. I went on TV while nursing and you couldnt tell (until the end), she wrote, referencing the moment her babys hand sneakily appeared in the frame.
